Proposal from

Andy Phillips

Proposal title

Slow Fast scoring

Existing text

A4

3.C8 FAST / SLOW SPEED

Objective

To fly a course as fast as possible and then as slow as possible (or vice versa).

Description

A straight course consisting of four equally spaced ‘kicking sticks’ between 250m and 500m long is laid out facing approximately into wind.

The course shall be flown twice. The order will be briefed (fast then slow or slow then fast).

The pilot makes a timed pass along the first course, returns to the start, and makes a second timed pass in the same direction.

There may be two courses but they must be of equal dimensions and orientation and separated by at least 200m flying distance.

Special rules

- A valid strike on a stick is:

EITHER one where the pilot or any part of the Paramotor has been clearly observed to touch it.

OR when electronic ‘kick stick’ sensors which have been shown to meet the standard tests are used, a valid strike is one which is recorded by the device.

- For each course, the clock starts the moment the pilot kicks the first stick and stops the moment he kicks the fourth stick.

- The pilot may have 3 attempts at kicking the first stick on each run.

- If the pilot misses the second or third stick then he is considered ‘too high’, penalty 50% course score for each stick missed.

- The maximum time allowed for a pilot to complete each course is 5 minutes.

In the slow course;

- If the pilot or any part of his Paramotor touches the ground or the fourth stick is missed: Vp2 = null and Ep = zero

- If the pilot zigzags: Score zero.

In the fast course;

- If the pilot or any part of his Paramotor touches the ground: Vp1 = zero and Ep = zero

- The pilot may have three attempts at kicking the fourth stick.

Pilot score =  (125 x Vp1 / Vmax) + (125 x Vmin / Vp2) + (250 x Ep / EMax)

Where:

Vmax = The highest speed achieved in the fast course, in Km/H

Vp1 = The speed of the pilot in Km/H in the fast course.

Vmin = The lowest speed achieved in the slow course, in Km/H

Vp2 = The speed of the pilot in Km/H in the slow course.

Ep = The difference between the pilot's slowest and fastest speeds, in Km/H

Emax = The maximum difference between slowest and fastest speeds, in Km/H

3.C8 FAST / SLOW SPEED

Objective

To fly a course as fast as possible and then as slow as possible (or vice versa).

Description

A straight course consisting of four equally spaced ‘kicking sticks’ between 250m 150m and 500m 300m long is laid out facing approximately into wind.

The course shall be flown twice. The order will be briefed (fast then slow or slow then fast).

The pilot makes a timed pass along the first course, returns to the start, and makes a second timed pass in the same direction.

There may be two courses but they must be of equal dimensions and orientation and separated by at least 200m flying distance.

Special rules

- A valid strike on a stick is:

EITHER one where the pilot or any part of the Paramotor has been clearly observed to touch it.

OR when electronic ‘kick stick’ sensors which have been shown to meet the standard tests are used, a valid strike is one which is recorded by the device.

- For each course, the clock starts the moment the pilot kicks the first stick and stops the moment he kicks the fourth stick.

- The pilot may have 3 attempts at kicking the first stick on each run.

- If the pilot misses the second or third stick then he is considered ‘too high’, penalty 50% course score for each stick missed.

- The maximum time allowed for a pilot to complete each course is 5 minutes.

In the slow course;

- If the pilot or any part of his Paramotor touches the ground or the fourth stick is missed: Vp2 = null and Ep = zero

- If the pilot zigzags: Score zero.

In the fast course;

- If the pilot or any part of his Paramotor touches the ground: Vp1 = zero and Ep = zero

- The pilot may have three attempts at kicking the fourth stick.

Pilot score =  (125 x Vp1 / Vmax) + (125 x Vmin / Vp2) + (250 x Ep / EMax)

Where:

Vmax = The highest speed achieved in the fast course without penalties, in Km/H

Vp1 = The speed of the pilot in Km/H in the fast course.

Vmin = The lowest speed achieved in the slow course without penalties, in Km/H

Vp2 = The speed of the pilot in Km/H in the slow course.

Ep = The difference between the pilot's slowest and fastest speeds, in Km/H

Emax = The maximum difference between scored slowest and fastest speeds after penalties, in Km/H

Reason

More realistic course length, as it is often difficult to fit the current minimum 200m course on some fields.

Fixing the current anomalies that min and max speeds should only affect everyone else’s score if not incurring penalties.
